Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS AMD Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   May 6, 2004


Benchmark: HDTach 2.71 (PATA/SATA/USB/FireWire)
HDTach will be used to test the IDE/PATA and SATA drives, as well as the USB and FireWire ports. For those of you unfamilure with HDTach, it is a low level hardware benchmark for random access read/write storage devices such as hard drives, removable drives (ZIP/JAZZ), flash devices, and RAID arrays. HD Tach uses custom device drivers and other low level Windows interfaces to bypass as many layers of software as possible and get as close to the physical performance of the device possible.

To test the IDE port, a 40G Maxtor HDD was used on the Primary Slave Channel. You see in this test, the Chaintech board actually preformed slightly better.

To show the difference between using SATA in a RAID or standalone configuration, I decided to benchmark the SATA 1 & 2 ports independently, as well as in a RAID setup (results SATA RAID).

Benchmarking of the USB/IEEE 1394 (that'd be FireWire) ports were also done with Simpli Software's HDTach (v2.71). - For these test, a 40G Seagate Barracuda drive in an external USB2/IEEE 1394 case was used.
